"Rheumatology nursing: a vocation, a profession, a passion" (Rheumatology Nurses Society)

Do you have a passion to provide services promoting, maintaining and restoring an optimal state of health and well-being? Are you prepared to use a scientific basis of nursing and deliver prescribed standards of care? With the advent of biologic medication, the landscape of treatment is changing, and we need a nursing team who are able to adapt and develop with the changing needs of the service.

We are looking for a nurse who will serve as patient counselors, educators and advocates, responsible for the delivery of the best care available in the safest possible way. You will be an integral member of the healthcare team and make significant positive changes in the lives of our patients with rheumatologic disease.
Our passion is to provide to our patients the services that will promote, maintain, and restore the most optimal state of health and well being that is achievable.

To accomplish this end, we must be prepared in the scientific basis of nursing and meet certain prescribed standards of education and clinical competence.

The advent of biologic medications is changing the landscape of treatment in rheumatology and this change is altering the description of rheumatology nursing.

Rheumatology nursing as a whole is comprised of educated professionals who serve as patient counsellors, patient educators, and patient advocates, responsible for delivering the best nursing care available in the safest possible way. To achieve this end, we continue to learn to educate each other and to be an integral member of the healthcare team, and as such we can make a significant positive change in the lives of patients with a rheumatologic disease.

If you have a passion for this exciting field of nursing we would love to hear from you, there are opportunities for full time or part time hours within the service.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post.
